1 & 1/2 cup Cauliflower Florest (Small Florets)
::::For Batter::::
1/4 to 1/2 cup Corn Starch
1 tbsp All Purpose Flour (Optional)
1/2 tsp Red Chili Powder
1/4 tsp Black Pepper Powder
Salt to taste
Oil for Deep Frying
1 tbsp Oil
1 tbsp Ginger Paste
1 tbsp Garlic Paste
2 tbsp Soy Sauce
1/2 tsp Sugar
1/2 cup Onion, finely chopped
2 Green chilies, finely chopped
1/2 tsp Chili Flakes
1 tbsp Vinegar
1 tsp Corn Starch
Approx. 1/2 cup water
salt to taste
::::For Garnishing::::
2 tbsp Scallions, finely chopped
1/4 cup Cabbage, thinly sliced (Optional)

1) First we will make Sauce. For that, heat a nonstick pan on High heat. Add oil, saute Ginger-Garlic Paste, Green Chilies. Then add Sugar and Soy sauce, saute for few seconds.
2) After few seconds, add Onion and let it cook on medium heat. Meanwhile, Mix 1 tsp Corn starch and 1/4 cup Water. Once Onion is done, add this mixture in the cooked Onion. Now, add Chili Flakes, Vinegar and salt. We need a thick sauce, so, add little water if needed. Corn starch should cook properly, so let the sauce cook for about 1 or 2 minutes. Remove from heat and keep aside.

Once water starts boiling add cauliflower florets and cook for about 2-3 minutes. Do not cook completely, we need half cooked Florets. Also don't cover the pan while water is boiling. (Note 1)
4) Drain and put these florets on a paper towel. Let the Florets cool down. Meanwhile, make the batter. In a bowl, mix corn starch and All purpose flour. Add water and make thick batter. Add Red Chili Powder, Black pepper and salt to taste. Mix well, remove all the lumps
5) Heat oil for deep frying. Once oil is heated, turn the heat on medium. Dip and cover the florets with the batter. Deep fry on medium heat till color changes to light brown.
6) Put fried florets on a paper towel to remove excessive oil. Put them in a bowl and sprinkle little Red chili Powder over all florets.
7) Reheat the sauce, add Scallions and Cabbage mix well. Now put fried florets in cover with the sauce. Serve hot as an Appetizer.

1) If you use don't cook Florets before frying, they will remain uncooked inside after frying. But if you cook them completely, they wont taste good. That's why we are cooking them slightly and not completely.
2) For the batter, you can use only Corn starch without adding All Purpose Flour. But, do not use only All purpose Flour, as Corn starch gives crisp after frying.
3) Use small florets, as large sized florets might remain uncooked inside after deep frying.
